Safe crossing

Hallowe’en crafts

Angelina and Logan Morris painted clay pots to look like jack-o-lanterns during Hallowe’en activities Saturday afternoon at the Fort Frances Museum. Decked out in costumes, the children had tons of spook-tacular fun with face-painting, game,s and getting to “bust” some ghosts.

Scavenger hunt
